Description: While some aspects of geography overlap with those of geology, geography students tend to be have a broader view of how weather, geology, biology and other influences affect a wide area. Students in this major generally enjoy working outdoors and in the field? itself. City planners tour their area of assignment as a matter of daily course, and geographers generally are found outside taking measurements and tests. In the classroom, a proficiency in math and the sciences are highly useful, and are essential skills for geography students and professionals alike. Majors with a bent toward computing may wish to take advantage of geographic information systems options, which focus on computerized mapping.
